Evidence sought for children's home abuse investigation

Wed, 26 Jul 2017

A Tynwald committee is looking for evidence for its inquiry into reports of historical child abuse at the former Knottfield Children's Home.

Tynwald agreed to refer the matter to the Social Affairs Policy Review Committee at this month's sitting, with a report due in December.

The committee is now asking for written submissions from anyone who would like to comment on Knottfield, which closed in 1983.

Details relating to individual cases won't be published without consent.

It's hoped the investigation will ensure the Island's current rules on safeguarding children are sufficient.

Evidence can be submitted by email or in writing to the Clerk of the Committee by the end of August.
